The goal of my preset is to give the game a more clear, subtle, realistic look and feel.
I hope, I somewhat achieved that.
Latest version (V8 - Squad V10). For changes read the changelog.
ABOUT MY PRESET
Change the colors for a more realistic look.
Make the image sharper. No more blurriness. You can actually spot people now.
Increase overall game brightness. Shadows are brighter as well.
Have a custom SMAA setting to help with jagginess. (Off by default. Enable in Reshade menu).
Apply everything just because I can.
Just increase gamma.
Kill your FPS.
I've purposefully not used any settings that will tank your fps. Most I've lost is 4 fps. That's with SMAA OFF.
Press Scroll Lock to turn it ON and OFF. Shift+F2 for Reshade menu. Pictures will be updated with every new version.
Make sure view distance is set to epic. Makes it less pixelated.
Shadows make a huge difference!
I recommend using my custom Reshade SMAA setting. It's are available from V6 and forward just turn it on in the Reshade menu.
Use super sampling if you have a really powerful machine.
Screenshots are taken with 2.2 in-game gamma.
Monitors are different, so if some maps are too bright for you turn down the in-game gamma and vice versa if too dark.
I recommend a value around 1.5-2.2.
Make sure your contrast is calibrated for the best results.
Please give some feedback. Not only for me, but for people who have never used Reshade before.

Don't be afraid to say hi if you see me in-game :-)
If you use any of my settings in your own preset please give credit where it's due. I already see people not doing that. Shaking my head.
